    Default The Border Is Up!

    Well... we're back!

    It's been a very difficult time and I would like to thank those who contributed their time and effort (Dreamer) and money (several others who I would like to name in a "thank you" post, but I will check with everybody first).

    The good news: We've got 99% of our posts from the last 13 years and we're able to pick up where we left off!

    The bad news: We lost six weeks of posts (the most recent), we lost all our Border styles, and there are going to be a lot of bugs to work out.

    I plan on restoring the styles eventually, but it will take some time, as I have to redo them all completely. Even something as simple as the icons has to be modified for the new style. I will start working on our default right away, though, as I find this one quite ugly.

    As for the bugs... we'll take them one at a time, and with the help of vBulletin support (which we are now paying for), hopefully get them all resolved as quickly as possible. Please be patient!

    We're finally back! I can say for sure, it wasn't an easy process though. It is unbelievable the hours of work, as well as the expense, that went into restoring the sites. I believe it is worth the effort though and I know Soda does too.

    Hope everyone makes their way back here and enjoys the new board.

    Wow Soda, I did not know it was so expensive. I am so happy they gave you a break. I would be willing to chip in should you need/want some help. Again, thank you so much everything you do. I know you are busy with school and your time is probably limited.
